You now have a square piece of paper with diagonal creases going from one corner to other corner..

Fold each corner to the center.
Turn over the paper.

Fold the new corners to the center.
Do not turn over the paper.

Fold the square in half from edge to edge in both directions.

Turn square over.
Insert your thumbs and forefingers under each flap and bring fingers together toward middle.

You now have a paper ice breaker!!

Color on each outside flap, a different color (Example : red, blue, green, yellow)
